AT first, it seemed like no big deal. On Oct. 20, Buckingham Palace announced Queen Elizabeth II would be skipping a planned trip to Northern Ireland on the advice of doctors. But when a British newspaper revealed the 95-year-old monarch had actually spent a night in a London hospital — prompting the Palace to come clean about her having “preliminary” tests — talk of a major royal cover-up quickly picked up steam. “Whenever the Queen falls sick,” says an insider,” the Palace goes to extreme measures to hide any sign of illness.”
The Queen’s health issues couldn’t come at a worse time for the royal family, already in damage-control overdrive trying to keep multiple crises under wraps. According to the insider, things are at a breaking point behind the scenes, where Prince William and Prince Charles are duking it out over who should succeed the Queen and a disgraced Prince Andrew remains in hiding in the midst of his sexualassault lawsuit. “With the Queen under the weather, the royals are really falling apart,” says the insider. “Everyone is butting heads. The family is a mess.”
